Arduino, Sensors, and the Internet of Things.pdf


You're ready to move beyond "blink" and basic bots, and who better to explain how Arduino works with the Internet of Things than RobotGrrl. In Arduino, Sensors, and the Internet of Things, Erin Kennedy, better known in the Arduino community as RobotGrrl, shows you the basics of connecting your Arduino to the Internet of Things. Then you'll advance to learn how to create networks of connected devices, how to make sensor decisions, and how to filter data.

Key elements in Arduino, Sensors, and the Internet of Things:

  • Determine which sensors to use and the best data methods
  • How to push and receive data on the Internet of Things
  • How to create networks of interconnected devices
The Arduino is inherently friendly; Arduino, Sensors, and the Internet of Things shows you how to make your Arduino-based gadgets talk to each other and to you.
